Valentine's Gift Guide for Him
Stumped by what to get your boyfriend, husband or father this year for Valentine’s Day? Don’t default to a box of chocolates, golf balls or a tie. From personalized cufflinks to bold leather bracelets, we've gathered the best gifts he'll love (and use) year-round.
Personalized cuff links. Every man needs a classic pair of cuff links, like the Tiffany Metropolis cuff links, featuring a bold, sophisticated urban design. Or opt for a unique spin on personalized cuff links, like these “Latitude and Longitude” custom cuff links off Etsy, that can mark the location of your first kiss or your wedding ceremony. These silver plated, vintage map cuff links from Etsy can feature up to two locations.
Men’s watches. For larger budgets, we love the Alipina Alipiner 4 Collection, the Breitling Chronomat 44, and the Tiffany Atlas Dome Watch. Even if your budget isn’t quiet big enough to accommodate a collector’s timepiece, there are still plenty of watches with fine craftsmanship features from which to choose. We love Fossil’s Grant Chronograph brown leather watch (it’s modeled after vintage clocks), the contemporary simplicity of the Nixon Time Teller, and the fun throwback Timex for J.Crew collaboration.
Leather bracelets. Is a leather bracelet is more his style than cuff links or a watch? Here are three we love: James Avery’s Fish hook leather bracelet that features a double wrap around style with a nautical-inspired sterling silver fishhook; Macy’s leather braided bracelet with a stainless steel clasp; and this black leather bracelet off Etsy that comes in a minimalist geometric style with a gold metal zipper.
Personalized key chain. For a simple meaningful gift he’ll look at throughout the day, we love a personalized key chain. It’s the perfect gift for a young child to give his or her father. Here are a few of our favorites off Etsy: “Dad we love you”; father/daughter keychain and necklace set; and the stick figure famiily keychain.
